A Greener World Means Using Greener Wood December 11, 2008

I came across an article on Market Watch about the sustainablity benifits of using wood in construction. In today’s modern age, there are a number of other building materials available, but none of them leave as little a carbon footprint or can be “renewed” like lumber. If forests are harvested resbonsibly than there is little reason why we shouldn’t be using more of this “green” product. You can read more about sustainable forestry at Sustainable NW and the FSC.
